photographer who sued for copyright in-springmenfringeinf. in 1984, the photographer took a photo of michael jordan before he signed a deal with nike. in 2015, he claimed that nike copied virtually every original photo. there is his on the left i believe. and then the marketing on the right. the appeals court up seld theld decision that it was not substantially similar. and "early start" continues with breaking news on obamacare. are you ready to say there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia in light of the mueller finding? >> democrats facing a hard choice post-robert mueller, keep investigating trump, focus on their agenda, can they do both.
2:01 am
and the white house now backs a full repeal of obamacare. the major shift after saying parts of the law could stand. a $20 million extortion plot, serious charges against the lawyer who helped expose the hush money payments from donald trump. and duke university used fake science to get real federal money and now the school is paying up. paying back taxpayers. welcome to "early start." >> it is tuesday, march 26, 5:00 a.m. in the east. there is always a tweet for that, but shearhere is a doozy. republicans will totally protect people with pre-existing conditions, democrats will not vote republican. overnight a major reversal by the trump administration on exactly that. in a monday court filing, the administration said the entire
2:02 am
affordable care act, all of it, should be struck down. the justice department says it now agrees with the federal judge in texas who invalidated the aca in a december ruling. at the time the administration said that it would not defend certain obamacare provisions including pre-existing condition protections covering 52 million americans, but it argued the rest of the law could stand. >> the president has repeatedly promised to protect people with pre-existing conditions, but the new stance doubles down on stripping away those and all other protections. the case is currently before a federal appeals court. 1.4 million americans signed up for obamacare coverage. democrats at a critical juncture this morning. after president trump is effectively cleared by special counsel robert mueller on collusion. for 22 months many democrats all but guaranteed mueller would find the president or his campaign had conspired with russians. when he did not, even nancy
2:03 am
pelosi was caught short. >> are you ready t say there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia? >> does this exonerate the president? >> i think the mueller report was clear the president is not exonerated. >> the speaker is indeed correct. mueller said he did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice. trump attorney rudy giuliani complained about that to chris cuomo. >> this is a cheap shot. >> i don't know why mueller said it. >> this is unprofessional. if people get prosecuted for what they are thinking, if somebody says i think i might want to kill that guy because he was mean to me -- >> formulation of intent? >> no. that is why he says there is no obstructive conduct. >> and democrats are still not ready to conclude that there was no russia conspiracy. they say they will continue to investigate ties between the campaign and russians, but that
2:04 am
strategy risks a political backlash if voters think democrats are grasping for evidence where mueller already investigated. it is a point 2020 hopeful elizabeth warren made last night. >> i spent the last couple days in new hampshire. i did a bunch of big public events, got maybe 100 questions. and do you know the number that were about the mueller report? zero. because what people were talking about, what they are asking about, are the things that touch their lives every day. >> like health care, jobs. speaker pelosi is already moving to move past mueller telling the leadership team house democrats should focus on their agenda, message, not russia interference. still the calls to release the full mueller report are growing louder by the hour. even the president seems okay with it. >> it is up to the attorney general, but it wouldn't bother me at all.
2:05 am
up to the attorney general. >> in the senate mitch mcconnell blocked efforts by democrats to make mueller's report public. mcconnell saying attorney general bill barr should not be rushed as he reviews the report to determine how much to release. a cnn poll conducted by ssrs finds 87% of americans across party lines believe mueller's team should produce a full public report of their findings. >> we will hear publicly from attorney general barr april 9th. set to testify on the doj budget, but expect a lot of questions about mueller and his report. michael avenatti arrested in new york for allegedly trying to extort more than $20 million from nike. he was released last night on $300,000 bond. he claims he is innocent. according to the criminal complaint, he met last week where attorneys for nike and threatened to release allegations of misconduct. >> that was on the eve of the company's quarterly earnings call, start of the ncaa
2:06 am
tournament. avenatti allegedly telling nike's lawyers i'll take $10 billion off your client's market cap, i'm not fing around. the charges coming minutes after he announced a press conference for today to disclose a supposed major scandal perpetrated by nike. >> i have fought against the powerful, powerful people and powerful corporations. i will never stop fighting that good fight. >> celebrity attorney mark geragos is an unnamed co-conspirator in the case. he was a cnn contributor, but is no longer as of monday. the news also broke that california charged him in a separate case involving wire and bank fraud, that could bring a maximum of 50 years in prison. pilots may have had less than a minute of overriding a system suspected in failing in at least one of those crashes of the boeing 737 max.
2:07 am
the "new york times" spoke to two unnamed pilots who recently conducted flight simulations. the point was to recreate a crisis situation similar to what investigators suspect went wrong on the doomed lion air flight last october. they discovered they had less than 40 seconds to override the automated system and avoid disaster. >> the pilots reportedly did not fully understand just how powerful the system was until they flew the plane on a 737 max simulator. the mcas system is the focus of the investigations into the lion air disaster and the ethiopian airlines crash this month. boeing expected to propose a software update that would give pilots more control over the system. duke university agreeing to pay a $112 million settlement to the u.s. government after being accused of falsifying scientific data to win federal research grants. the school allegedly submitted bogus data to the national
2:08 am
institutes of health and epa from 2006 to 2018. a former duke employee who filed a whistle blower suit against duke will receive nearly $34 million as part of that settlement. the university president says, quote, we expect duke researchers to adhere always to the highest standards of integrity. when individuals fail to uphold those standards, we must accept responsibility. a federal ban on bump stocks begins today. the devices enable semi automatic rifles to fire like machine guns. they came under scrutiny after the las vegas massacre in 2017 when a gunman killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more. after the shooting president trump vowed to outlaw bump stocks. last night the supreme court received at least two emergency appeals asking the justices to put the ban on hold. the justice department is calling on bump stock owners to destroy the devices or turn them into an atf field office. the "green new deal" backed by many democrats is expected to
2:09 am
be blocked in the senate today by democrats. they believe republicans are trying to on score political points by forcing a quick vote on the still developing proposal. majority leader mitch mcconnell has publicly stated he is pushing for a vote to put the opposition on the record, but democrats plan to counter mcconnell by voting present instead of for or against the deal. they will argue the "green new deal" at this stage is more of an aspirational document than a piece of legislation. president trump is breaking precedent again with his latest pick to the federal reserve. the president announced his plans to nominate stephen moore. moore says he is unfamiliar with monetary policymaking. >> i'm kind of new to this game frankly, so i'm going to be on a steep learning curve myself about how the fed operates, how the federal reserve makes its decisions. and this is a real exciting
2:10 am
opportunity for me. so it is hard for me to say what even my role will be there assuming i get confirmed. >> moore's nomination has raised concerns given his previous comments about the fed. moore blasted jerome powell for raises interest rates saying they should be thrown out for economic malpractice. there are currently two svacan y vacancies on the fed board. an independent body of course. the president is are considering republican presidential candidate herman cain for the second open seat. the nominations would have to be confirmed by the senate. very rare to see somebody nominated and then do television sb interviews. so a lot of buzz. >> and acknowledged a lack of knowledge. ahead, the struggle to cope with mass shootings has claimed a third victim in a week. this time the father of a child killed at sandy hook elementary. - [woman] with my shark, i deep clean messes like this.

hey guys, quick announcement, i've decided to retire from the sport formally known as mixed m martial arts. i wish all my colleagues well going forward in competition. odd timing because mcgregor was on jimmy fallon just last night and he said that he and the ufc were negotiating a potential return to the octagon in july. rough night in the nba for the trail blazers. one of their best players nurcic sustained a compound fracture. and reaction from the players says it all. they ran over immediately and threw a towel on his leg. blazers coach terry stotts said that he was taken to a local hospital and called the injury devastating. damian lillard was on the court when jordan broke his leg and

are you ready to say there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia in light of the mueller finding? >> democrats facing a hard choice post-robert mueller, keep investigating trump, focus on their agenda, can they do both. and the white house now backs a full repeal of obamacare. the major shift after saying parts of the law could stand. a $20 million extortion plot, serious charges against the lawyer who helped expose the hush money payments from donald trump. and duke university used fake science to get real federal money and now the school is paying up. welcome back to "early start." >> breaking overnight, a major reversal by the trump administration. remember this? >> the next major priority for me and for all of us should be
2:31 am
to lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions. >> now no more. in a monday court filing, the administration said the entire affordable care act, all of it, should be struck down. the justice department says it now agrees with the federal judge in texas who invalidated the aca in a december ruling. at the time the administration said that it would not defend certain obamacare provisions including pre-existing condition protections covering 52 million americans, but it argued the rest of the law could stand. the case is currently before a federal appeals court. 11.4 million americans signed up for obamacare coverage in 2019. democrats at a critical juncture this morning after president trump is effectively cleared by special counsel robert mueller on collusion. for 22 months many democrats all but guaranteed mueller would find the president or his campaign had conspired with russians.
2:32 am
when he did not, even nancy pelosi was speechless. >> are you ready to say there was no collusion between the trump campaign and russia? >> does this exonerate the president? >> i think the mueller report was clear the president is not exonerated. >> the speaker is indeed correct. mueller said he did not exonerate the president on obstruction of justice. trump attorney rudy giuliani complained about that to chris cuomo. >> this is a cheap shot. >> i don't know why mueller said it. >> this is unprofessional. if people get prosecuted for what they are thinking, if somebody says i think i might want to kill that guy because he was mean to me -- >> formulation of intent? >> no. that is why he says there is no obstructive conduct. >> and democrats are still not ready to conclude that there was no russia conspiracy.
2:33 am
they say they will continue to investigate ties between the campaign and russians, but that strategy risks a political backlash if voters think democrats are grasping for evidence where mueller already investigated. it is a point 2020 hopeful elizabeth warren made last night. >> i spent the last couple days in new hampshire. i did a bunch of big public events, got maybe 100 questions. and do you know the number that were about the mueller report? zero. because what people were talking about, what they are asking about, are the things that touch their lives every day. >> like health care. speaker pelosi already moving past mueller telling the leadership team house democrats should focus on their agenda, their message, not russia interference. still the calls to release the full mueller report are growing louder by the hour. even the president seems okay with it.
2:34 am
>> it is up to the attorney general, but it wouldn't bother me at all. up to the attorney general. >> in the senate mitch mcconnell blocked efforts by democrats to make mueller's report public. mcconnell saying attorney general bill barr should not be rushed as he reviews the report to determine how much to release. a cnn poll conducted by ssrs finds 87% of americans across party lines believe mueller's team should produce a full public report of their findings. >> we will hear publicly from attorney general barr april 9th. set to testify on the doj budget, but expect a lot of questions about mueller and his report. let's bring in congressional correspondent and cnn political analyst. great to have you here. >> good morning. >> so both parties retreating further into their corners following the release of the mueller report and the president with a real opportunity you could argue to govern, to at least attempt to try to unite
2:35 am
this country and the first smmo is ripping pre-existing conditions from millions of americans. is elizabeth warren right, americans don't care about the mueller report and is this a gift to the democrats? >> democrats were going to be in a difficult position to answer questions about the mueller report that they didn't want to talk about on the campaign trial or as elizabeth warren is saying that she is not getting any district questions. they ran on health care as an issue. it is one of the things that they kept bringing up when they came back to win seats in this last midterm election. and so yeah, this is one of the things that they want to be able to talk about. and the fact that there will be a more stark difference between democrats who either personally or in so many terms assumed tsu the obamacare law, advocating for medicare for all, and that just makes the difference that much more stark even if people won't necessarily feel it
2:36 am
immediately because it won't go into effect necessarily before the election in the way that hits people in their gut. it will still be something that is out there, not just a talking point, but a real comparison point. and i think democrats are relishing that opportunity. >> if you talk about how this is a new phase in the trump administration after 22 months, ice got wha he's got what he considers a big lie behind him and now he can move forward, democrats are at a cross roads too. do they push their owned a age push the investigations or can they to both. >> two points of calculus for the democrats. one is that they think there might be actually something there. i think that we've been talking a lot about wanting to see the full release of the mueller report. i think for democrats it goes beyond that. they want to see the evidence underlying the report to figure out exactly what he looked at. there are many democrats on the hill who believe that the periods that they are looking at go broader, are more
2:37 am
comprehensive and that maybe they can find evidence of something that he didn't find because he wasn't looking at everything that they are looking at. they don't know because they haven't seen everything that he is looking at, so that is one thing. democrats think that they might be able to find something that mueller didn't. but on the other hand, there is the question of what do they choose to actually spend their time on. do they choose to make a political decision, that they will focus on this or that they will move away from it because it depends on how the public is receiving it. especially if the word impeachment is now off the table. at the end of the day the judge is the public, the moment of judging is the 2020 elections and they have to be really careful about what they do based on what sort of reception that they are getting. >> same questions for right because the president is already trying to fund raise off of not being a criminal and kellyanne conway calling for adam schiff to resign and lindsey graham saying there are other questions about again the other side. here is lindsey graham yesterday. >> by any reasonable standard, mr. mueller thoroughly
2:38 am
investigated the trump campaign. you cannot say that about the other side of the story. and what i hope mr. barr will do is understand for the country's sake appoint somebody outside the current system to look into these allegations, somebody we all trust, and let them do what mr. mueller did. >> so republicans want president obama investigated. asking the question should obama and clinton be charged. are there legitimate questions here about the surveillance process? >> i think that there are always -- you can always ask questions about how the surveillance process works because it is a very secretive process although we have seen more information be publicized over the last year or so because the gop in the house was running a probe into these matters over -- when they were in charge of congress. graham had always said he was going to pick up that baton and keep running with it. he has always said that he thinks that there is the need
2:39 am
for a second special counsel to look into how the fbi and doj conducted themselves when they were doing -- running probes of clinton and trump. there is an ig report out there that says that certain numbers were shown to have been biased working on the clinton email probe. doesn't think the bias affected the outcome, but this is something that the gop has seized on and it seems like in this moment in which they don't have to worry about the president anymore -- that is not completely true, there will be democratic pushes on the president investigations still that go forward. but this case in which trump gets a breather, they are turning back to saying okay, keep going back there. but like we were talking about before, there is always the potential political backlash. hillary clinton won't be on the ballot in 2020, there will be people that are tired of the harping on clinton too. so let's see what barr decides to do, if he answers these calls from trump's supporters or he says let's just all move on. >> when policy starts rising to the surface again, well see that
